G’huun Uldir Raid Boss Preview with FatbossTV



Beta

2

In today’s Uldir preview, Fatboss is highlighting G’huun — the final boss of Uldir. G’huun is an experiment created by the Titans who has a ravenous, unending desire to corrupt and consume its host.

Don’t forget to check out our Uldir Encounter Journal for more boss info.

The G’huun encounter takes place in the Festering Core at the end of the Uldir raid and is a three phase fight.

In the first phase, you’ll be dealing with G’huun’s minions: Blightspreader Tendril, Cyclopean Terror and Dark Young. The Dark Young is very beneficial in this phase and it periodically buffs all friends and foes around it with Dark Bargain causing everything nearby to take and deal 25% more damage. Meanwhile, some players will have to head to the upper platforms where they will find a Power Matrix. At the end of a long corridor is the Reorigination Drive and players must get the Power Matrix there 3 times to end the phase. The challenge is that the Power Matrix increasingly slows the player until they are completely immobile causing players to play hot potato with the Drive to get it until the end, similar to Lady Vashj.

In the second phase, you’ll fight G’huun directly. Players will need to be spread out for Wave of Corruption to reduce the amount of Putrid Blood stacks they get. A player will be targeted by Blood Feast and everyone will need to remove all stacks of Putrid Blood by standing inside. Blood Feast will create an add whose damage and health will increase based on the number of stacks it consumed. Meanwhile, the Reorigination Drive is still active and a small team should still continue to power it up with Power Matrix. When the Reorigination Drive fires, G’huun and all minions will be stunned and damage taken increased by 100% for 25 seconds.

In the last phase, it’s a burn phase with no Reorigination Drive but also no way to clear your Putrid Blood stacks. You’ll also have to watch out for Collapse which rains Debris down from the ceiling and Gaze of G’huun which you’ll have to turn away from the boss, similar to Yogg-Saron.

Fatboss thinks that the running of the Power Matrix is an awesome idea but it definitely caters to some classes over others. They think that the pacing of the adds in Phase 1 is pretty good, but the damage during Phase 2 of the test was very high and just overtuned in general.

Loot

Overview

  • Overview: G’huun begins the encounter encased within the chamber’s wall, calling forth minions to assault his foes. To dislodge him from his lair, the Reorigination Drive must be fully charged by depositing [Power Matrices] within it.
    Once active, G’huun begins his assult in earnest. G’huun can be stalled by continuing to power up the Reorigination Drive, causing [Reorigination Blasts] to weaken him.
    Upon reaching 25% health, G’huun unleashes his might, destroying the Reorigination Drive, preventing the use of [Reorigination Blasts].
